This antique Victorian bracelet set features a floral plaque encrusted with warm garnets and pearls mounted in a gold-filled mesh. Popularly known as wedding garter bracelets, their incorporation of loyalty symbolism and hidden clasp make them easily adjustable. When couples became engaged, the bride-to-be received the first bracelet of a matching two-piece set, which was traditionally worn up until the wedding day when the second bracelet was added. Over time, many sets have become separated, making them uniquely difficult to find in pairs. This antique set of Victorian bracelets is just as stunning today as it was over 135 years ago.

Each piece has been professionally examined and verbally appraised as well as being tested by a goldsmith for metal content. Stone carat weights stated represent approximate weights which can vary. Due to the age, antique and vintage jewelry is often not perfect, and may have normal signs of surface wear, or small imperfections due to its hand crafted rather than mass-manufactured nature. This is what makes each piece special and unique!
